Thursday Thoughts: the future is exciting!

Yes, I'm very cliché but I just thought the topic was appropriate for me, especially since I graduate on Sunday (still hasn't set in yet).

But here's the deal: I don't think it matters where you are in life right now. Whether you're finishing school, starting a new job, quitting a job you hate, starting a new relationship, unfortunately ending an old relationship, in a new home, meeting new people, what have you (and trust me I could probably go on forever!), the future is exciting. I'm extremely excited for it and I don't even know what it's throwing my way yet! Part of the reason why people get scared is they think that horrible things are going to happen and they are not going to know how to react, which makes in turn the good things not as good because they're solely focused on those scary, what if, bad things that might occur. There are two choices: you can go that route and probably be just a nervous wreck, or you can turn around, with your head held high, and just float along embracing each new day.

Maybe I'm having lots of early 20s optimism, but I'm finding that so many people are scared for the unknown, the future. Rather than be scared, I think that embracing it, having faith, and going with your gut instincts makes the future that much more exciting.

So wherever you are in your career, your relationships, your personal life, your family life: relax. The future's going to be just fine!

(also maybe why I'm so excited about the future is the future of my room is looking great! haha, I know what a transition! Clean closets can really boost your mood!)

Happy Thursday ladies!



  1. Embrace your early twenties...they go by faster than you think! Congrats on graduating!!

  2. Congrats! That's so exciting! I could agree with you more, I always try to move forward rather than dwell in the past



  3. I think the fear of the unknown is what is difficult, but we never know what even tomorrow will bring so should we fear every single day? Of course not! Congratulations on graduating it's an adventure! I'm on my last 20. ;) xoxo A-

  4. Awww well this was really good advice. I wish I were better at it. I enjoy my job right now and am completely satisfied with everything right now, but find myself scared that in the future I will be stuck doing what I'm doing and not moving up in the world or not being successful or not being able to support myself or etc. etc. etc. the list goes on... I wish I were better at just embracing life than worrying about what the future may hold. THanks for this inspiring post :) I'll work on it haha! Have a great weekend!


Thanks for your sweet comments! They make my day and I appreciate every one!
